Sadly, I haven’t been cooking lately as much as I’d like. It’s a combination of being extra busy and extra lazy.
But the other day I had the day off, so taking advantage of being able to start making dinner in the afternoon before I was starving, I actually had a nice meal ready by the time dinner time rolled around.
And as I began, I remembered why I loved cooking.

and made soup.
Soup that I then ate for days and days.
Good thing it was yummy.
